Bad Breath Blues - The Boss Is Always Right
You’ve forgotten to floss, I think
(My nose frets and frowns as I shrink)
Purchase mints by the bag!
Brush your tongue til you gag!
(My eyes water up at the stink)
"Yes sir, I am really quite fine!
"Allergies, you know," is my line
"No sir, wasn't crying!"
(My brain is just frying)
"Do lunch? Why, the pleasure is mine!"
*Unfortunately, this is a somewhat exaggerated version of a true story...
